    Business Survey: Government Job Training Programs Not Effective

    Only 16% Say Programs Work

    Need For Successful Training Programs Is High

    Logan, UT, September 30, 2016—Express Employment Professionals released new survey results revealing that businesses have a low opinion of government job training programs.

    Respondents were asked, “In your opinion, how effective are government job training programs?” 

    A total of 28 percent said the programs were either “ineffective” or “very ineffective,” an increase from 24 percent in the 2015 survey. Only 2 percent said “very effective,” and 16 percent said “effective.” A majority, 55 percent, said the programs were “neither effective nor ineffective.”

    “There is a surplus of job opportunities for skilled workers in Cache Valley. Technical training is critical to the success of our unique economy,” said Doug Anthony, franchise owner of the Logan, UT Express office.
